Patient registries are key instruments aimed at a better understanding of the natural history of diseases, at assessing the effectiveness of therapeutic interventions, as well as identifying rare events or outcomes that are not captured in clinical trials. However, the potential of registries goes far beyond these aspects. For example, registries promote the standardization of clinical practice, can also provide information on domains that are not routinely collected in clinical practice and can support decision-making...

Erythema elevatum diutinum is a rare neutrophilic dermatoses with vasculitis, which presents as persistent, symmetrical, purple or brownish papules and nodules, mainly in the extensor surface of the limbs. We describe a case of erythema elevatum diutinum and polyarthritis as initial manifestations of Crohn's disease associated spondyloarthritis. A 51-year-old man, from São Tomé e Príncipe, with previous history of treated tuberculosis and chronic hepatitis B infection, was admitted due to 4 months history of polyarthritis, hyperpigmented papules on the extensor surfaces, occasional episodes of bloody mucous diarrhea and significant weight loss...

OBJECTIVE: There is a lack of outcome measures to assess the impact of axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA) on health, function and quality of life. The Assessment of SpondyloArthritis International Society (ASAS) group developed the ASAS Health Index (ASAS-HI) and the ASAS Environmental Factors Item Set (ASAS-EF) to measure functioning and health across all aspects of health that are typically affected and relevant for patients with axSpA, based on the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF)...

Biosimilars are new and more affordable similar versions of previously approved reference biological drugs. Following the approval of the first monoclonal antibody biosimilar in 2013, the Portuguese Society of Rheumatology issued a position paper on the use of biosimilars in rheumatic conditions covering efficacy, safety, extrapolation, interchangeability, substitution and pharmacovigilance. However, as this is a rapidly evolving field, it was felt that the knowledge and evidence gathered since then justified an update of these statements...

OBJECTIVE: To update the recommendations for the treatment of axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA) with biological therapies, endorsed by the Portuguese Society of Rheumatology. METHODS: These treatment recommendations were formulated by Portuguese rheumatologists based on literature evidence and consensus opinion. At a national meeting, the 7 recommendations included in this document were discussed and updated. A draft of the full text of the recommendations was then circulated and suggestions were incorporated...

Ackerman's Syndrome or Intersticial Granulomatous Dermatitis with Arthritis has been an issue of increasing number of reports in the last decade which had focused its heterogeneous cutaneous and rheumatologic expression besides the initial manifestations reported by Ackerman and his group. Granulomatosis anterior uveitis has not been previously described. Some patients are reported to have positive autoantibodies but association with anticentromere antibodies has not been previously described as well, to our knowledge...

INTRODUCTION: Spinal involvement is infrequent in chronic gout. However, some cases of back pain with radiculopathy secondary to this etiology have been reported. CASE REPORT: 56-year old male patient, with history of arterial hypertension, hypertriglyceridemia, obesity, glucose intolerance and alcohol abuse, diagnosed with gout in his fifth decade of life. The patient was started on urate lowering therapy, with poor compliance, and evolved with sustained hyperuricemia, recurrent episodes of arthritis, and growth of gouty tophi on the elbows, wrists, hands and knees...

INTRODUCTION: Cutaneous sclerosis can lead to important mobility impairment. Ultraviolet (UV) A1 phototherapy may improve skin sclerosis, although most of the studies have been with Caucasian patients. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A 44-year-old patient, Fitzpatrick skin type VI, was being followed up with the diagnosis of diffuse cutaneous systemic sclerosis. He had significant mobility impairment, especially of the right hand and arm. In 2015 he started UVA1 phototherapy daily, Monday until Friday (Waldmann® 7001 UVA cabin equipped with 40 Philips TL/10R lamps - spectral irradiation between 340 and 400 nm)...

OBJECTIVES: To assess the effectiveness of subcutaneous Golimumab 50 mg/monthly combined with methotrexate (SC GLM + MTX) over 52 weeks of treatment, in biologic-naïve RA patients, in a multicentre nationwide cohort from the Rheumatic Diseases Portuguese Register (Reuma.pt). METHODS: Data for this observational study was collected from March 2011 to August 2015. Disease activity (DAS28), functional capacity (HAQ) and Patient Global Disease Assessment (PGDA) were measured at baseline and weeks 12, 24 and 52 of treatment...

Systemic sclerosis is a connective tissue disease characterized by a complex pathogenesis and a multi organ involvement of unknown etiology. Genetic features and environmental factors, as the use of some drugs, influence the onset of the clinical picture. The authors describe a case of a patient who developed systemic sclerosis after treatment of melanoma with interferon alfa-2b, drug rarely implicated in the induction of this disease.

The definition of axial involvement in psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is still under debate. Currently, the axial spondyloarthritis (SpA) criteria defined by Assessment of Spondyloarthritis International Society (ASAS) may be the most adequate.(1) The aims of present study were to assess axial involvement according to ASAS criteria in an observational PsA cohort and define the clinical characteristics more associated with this kind of involvement. Our study included consecutive patients who had a visit in a tertiary Rheumatology centre...

BACKGROUND: Methotrexate (MTX) is the first-line drug in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and the most commonly prescribed disease modifying anti-rheumatic drug. Moreover, it is also used as an adjuvant drug in patients under biologic therapies, enhancing the efficacy of biologic agents. OBJECTIVES: To review the literature and update the Portuguese recommendations for the use of MTX in rheumatic diseases first published in 2009. METHODS: The first Portuguese guidelines for the use of MTX in rheumatic diseases were published in 2009 and were integrated in the multinational 3E Initiative (Evidence Expertise Exchange) project...

AIM: The study has two aims: 1) to evaluate the association of IL-17 polymorphism rs2275913 with RA severity and 2) to evaluate if this particular SNP is associated with susceptibility for RA in Mexican patients. METHODS: Seventy-six RA patients and ninety-four healthy controls were included in the study. RA patients were evaluated according to DAS 28. Treatment with DMARD'S was prescribed and radiological damage was evaluated according to the Larsen method. A case-control study was used...
